Psoaring thru Psalm 91

Good morning, Dear Friends and Prayer Partners! This is the day that the Lord has made and we will rejoice and be glad in it! When I stepped outside early this morning, the very thin crescent moon was low in the east and cupped. I could see the shadow of the rest of the moon above it. Awesome! It probably won't be visible at all tomorrow, as it completes it cycle.

Well, once again yesterday, we had a rainy morning, but a hot, sunny afternoon! The towering white clouds are showing this morning, but, so far, no rain. We did our errands yesterday afternoon after the rain and took a ride through the drippy Park. Quite a few people there, and workers cleaning out the weir, where all the washed down trash accumulates.

An anhinga was drying its wings on one of the rails and a tourist stopped his car and walked over to see it. I wish he could have seen a great white heron slapping a fish, trying to swallow it! Now, that's a sight! God is Marvelous!

Psalm 91 NLT:

Those who live in the shelter of the Most High,
will find rest in the shadow of the Almighty.
This I declare of the Lord
He alone is my refuge, my place of safety"
he is my God, and I am trusting him.
For he will rescue you from every trap
and protect you from the fatal plague.
He will shield you with his wings.
His faithful promises are your armor and protection.
Do not be afraid of the terrors of the night,
nor fear the dangers of the day,
nor dread the plague that stalks in Darkness,
nor the disaster that strikes at midday.
Though a thousand fall at your side,
though ten thousand are dying around
you, these evils will not touch you.
But you will see how the wicked are punished.

If you make the Lord your refuge,
If you make the Most High your shelter,
no evil will conquer you;
no plague will come near your dwelling.
For he orders his angels
to protect you wherever you go.

They will hold you with their hands
to keep you from striking your foot on a stone.
They will trample down lions and poisonous snakes:
you will crush fierce lions and serpents under your feet.

The Lord says, "I will rescue those who love me.
I will protect those who trust in my name.
When they call on me, I will answer:
I will be with them in trouble.
I will rescue them and honor them.
I will satisfy them with a long life
and give them my salvation."

I always give thanks for you, remembering you in my prayers with thanksgiving, joy and love!

Love and hugs,
